Flashing back to Stanley’s Discount Variety Center in Queens.

We loved the vintage #signage this #storefront has and its wide assortment of hardware, houseware and other items it sold. We remember thinking back in the early 2000s that the shop was located directly underneath the elevated tracks and filth would drip down onto its sign.
